Masters in Food Science

Study Food Science Masters Programmes

Food science is a branch of science that looks at the properties of food, and how this knowledge can be applied to the processing, production, preservation, sanitation and distribution within the food industry. In practice, food scientists are integral in improving food safety and quality, sustainability, and health and nutrition across the globe.

A postgraduate degree in food science will allow you to expand on the knowledge and skills gained at undergraduate level. Modules you study could include sustainable agricultural systems, food flavour and sensory science, animal nutrition, and food security.
